SPOKANE, Wash. – The Spokane AIDS Network, a local non-profit that helps people across Eastern Washington, is in need of some extra help fixing up their building.
The charity’s offices are located on the third floor of their building, but their fire escape needed to be replaced. Thanks to donations from the community, volunteers now have the supplies they need to fix it. However, more volunteers are needed to fix other problems around the building.
“It's a very old house, it's great for what we do, but there's a lot of maintenance,” said Joseph Ready, a volunteer at Spokane AIDS Network.
Volunteers donate more than 3,000 hours of their time each year to help, according to the organization. The group is always looking for more volunteers.
"Our volunteers are the backbone of our organization,” said Ready. “Without our volunteers, we basically would have to close our doors."
